Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

After a very long hike we were looking forward to a fish & chip meal. We ordered the battered blue cod with 1/2 portion chips. Unfortunately the batter was very very greasy but fish lovely.

If you eat fish, it’s criminal not to come here and have Blue Cod. Absolutely worth it, the batter keeps it moist and it’s SO fresh. The chips are really nice too, and oh what a meal after a 6-day hike. Sometimes has a long...queue but stick it out, it’s popular for a reason. Worth the wait.More

Very good reasonably priced fish and chips. Make sure to put on plenty of insect repellent before you wait outside while they freshly cook lovely blue cod and chips because if you don’t the sandflies will feast on you. Portions are generous and the quality...is high.More

Maybe the best fish and chips I’ve had…ever? The fish was so soft and tender and the breading was perfectly crisp, light, and deliciously seasoned. 1 scoop of chips is plenty for a couple to share! I’m so glad we stopped at the Kai Kart!

I tried the battered sausage, fish bites (2 pieces) blue cod and half scoop fries. The fries were good. Battered sausage doubled in size from batter and was way too salty and too greasy. Fish bites were okay but also too salty. Sometimes I think...people on holiday over-rate…cause everything is good on a holiday.More

Our family of 4 ordered 2 blue cod fillets, 2 hot dogs, lemon pepper squid and a scoop of chips. It did not disappoint and was delicious and very fresh. The scoop of chips was very generous in size and we couldn’t eat them all....It is a great setting overlooking Half moon Bay and the service was excellent. Highly recommend and would definitely visit again while on Stewart Island.More

Very busy place with a long line and limited outdoor seating. We ordered fish and chips and we all enjoyed our food. It took them an hour after we ordered to serve us. (They informed us of that when we ordered.) Fortunately it's a very...nice area to walk around while waiting.More

Battered Blue Cod, Chips & Tartare Sauce. Yum … we reckon this is the best blue cod we’ve ever had! The crispy battered fillets were generous and so fresh they melted in your mouth. The chips were just as tasty and the one scoop was...too much for two persons. Half a scoop would have been plenty but we persevered ‘cos they were so good. We purchased extra sauce. Yep, best f’n’c ever …More

The fish is super fresh, and whether you have it grilled or battered, it tastes amazing. The portions are also very generous. We ate here 3 out of the 5 nights we stayed on Stewart Island.

We had 2 scoops for 3 people and it was plenty. Next...night we tried the burgers, both the Blue Cod and Chicken burger also highly rated. Real fillet of chicken in the burger plus bacon and coleslaw, yum!More
